Every year in autumn, IT security is the focus of attention for four weeks. European Cyber Security Month (ECSM) was launched in 2012 to make people all over Europe aware of the challenges and dangers of the digital world in October. "Nachgehackt – Der Podcast zu IT-Security" is also intended to contribute to this. In five fresh episodes, the presenter Henrike Tönnes, together with experts and exciting people, illuminates exciting topics from the field of IT security in an easily accessible and entertaining way.

The opening episode on October 17 is about a highly topical subject: deepfakes. Deceptively real images of the Pope in a stylish down coat or Donald Trump in police custody - deepfakes are fascinating and raise the question: Can we finally no longer trust our eyes (and other senses)? Henrike Tönnes dives into the world of deepfake photography together with Jonas Ricker, PhD student at the Chair of Machine Learning at Ruhr-Universität Bochum. How are the artificial images produced? What dangers lurk in the new, AI-generated visual reality? And how can deepfakes be debunked? Jonas Ricker, who is researching the technical ways to detect fake images in his doctoral thesis, knows the answers.

The other episodes will be published monthly:
